LATER ROMAN PAGANISM.
Professor Clifford Kerschel Moore of Harvard delivered an
interesting lecture, Wednesday, March ti, in College Hall
Chapel. His subject was, "Some Characteristics of Lain- Ro-
man Paganism." Professor Moore spoke tirst of the general
hnk of Study and of knowledge of Roman conditions during the
thud and fourth centuries, and of the great change taking place
before and during this period in Roman religion. He spoke of
the period of indifference to religious forms and thought . of re-
ligious decay- during the early empire and named Virgil with
his literary gods and Horace, the frank atheist, as examples ol
this period. Augustus' attempt to revive the ancienl cult did
not dclav the inevitable decay The cult of the Emperor was es-
tablished at this time.
The first three centuries of our era saw great changes in the
religion. The official religion was not given up; Jupiter was
still supreme. But countless other gods were introduced by
various means. Society at Rome became very cosmopolitan.
Contact with other and older civilizations through foreign cam-
paigns and trade established many strange, mysterious oriental
cults at Rome, such as the worship of the Great Mother of
Phrygia, of Isis of Egypt and of Milterus from Persia. The
practical exact performance of ritual could not satisfy the
"sense of sin," as this new kind of worship with its attendant
nxysti i UN, secret elaborate ritual and initiations. Each of these
hew Divinities claimed to be the supreme, all-comprehending
Professor Moore called the age one of reaction from the period
of indilTerentism of the first century B C. Religion ceased to be
national and became individualistic, as socitey grew more cos-
mopolitan. With the republic, political life had practically
ceased and men's thoughts turned naturally toward other
things. Professor Moore spoke next of the influence of Stoi-
cism and of Nfeoplatonism.
The former was a strong, moral philosophy with a pantheistic
conception. Cod was a single principle, but demons were recog-
nized in an intermediate world between God and man The
doiiiinanl Hole of this philosophy was one of sadness. The su-
preme deity was an abstraction. The fate of the individual
sou! was annihilation, It was too pessimistic to satisfy men's
Neopli ism was a new Alexandrian philosophy, li was an
abstract monotheism which recognized beings between man and
the divinity, emanations from the supreme, steps by which man
could approach di\ mil v.
In do ing, I'rufi oi Moore told how paganism prepares
the way for Christianity. Its essential features, he said, are
first: safety hereafter; second: satisfaction now bv various I civ
monies, baptism, reception into the church, ritual, promise of
the future. Profe or M v compared some of these symbolic
ceremonies with similar pagan rites in the cull of Isis or the
Orphic sect. The way for Christianity, was 10 prepared by
paganism that Christianity appeared as a new Eastern mvsteiw
ami as such did not seem itrangeand antagonizing toone. In
conclusion, Professor Moor,- reminded us thai no change is
udden and thai Christianity owes a great debt to paganism Eor
preparing her way.

Fuller gavi a mi sagi from the National Board through Miss

limited to ten members. The reason for this change "lies in the
fact that the delegations from the smaller colleges, which be-
long to the board, are apt to be overlooked, and attention di-
rected lo the large and enthusiastic delegations from Wellesley,
Smith and Vassar. which arc not yet affiliated. The Silver Bay

the text, there is this great command to bring
• to obedience to Christ, in whom are hid all the
idom and knowledge. By obeying this we may
nil as power in religious life. Two consequences
arise from failure to unite the religious life with the intel-
lectual. First, the church is too remote from the greater in-
tellectual movements of the times. Second, there is a general
shrinking of the religious minded from dogma. Everyone must
think in dogma-, for a religion of feeling alone could not endure.
Religion should be the a. ti'vitv of the whole nature raised to the
highest power, for this we should clarify our minds and let them
work at the great systems of truth, of which creeds are the
symbols. . ,
"The intellect taken bv itself cannot find God; the quest is
gained as a result of the interplay of till the powers— imagina-
tion, emotion and will entering very largely into the search.
When God is once experienced bv the soul, the intellect is re-
created, it is transfigured and exalted by faith. Then
great a division here and everywhere between longing tor wor-
ship and real activity in religious investigation; there is a lack of
intellectual vividness in religious life.
The bond which holds us till together, here tit \\ ellcslev. is not
the "college life," not education or "practical efficiency," but
the real quest for truth. The tone of the whole college should
be affected and created by it ; it should be the supreme thing in

The Annual Reports of the College Settlements
This week, the annual reports of the College Settlements As-
sociation have been distributed more or less throughout the col-
lege, especially to members of the Association. We have no1
been doing this for a pastime, but because we want every mem-
ber to realize to what she pays her dues every year, and what
thai money is accomplishing. It is not brought out in popular
form with colored photographs and graphic illustrations, but it
is interesting reading, nevertheless. The reports from the va-
rious sub-chapters in the colleges show what special work they
have done this past year and arc cspc. lallv valuable in furnish-
ing suggestions to us for new departures and better methods of
work. Following these, are the rather detailed reports from
the head workers of the three settlements, which we help sup-
port. Miss Williams' report is full of enthusiasm and new plans
of the gymnasium, for which thev have been working so long,
while Miss Davis, in a delightfully refreshing and clever paper,
tells of her struggles with the "ways of darkness" in Philadel-
phia. Probably the most interesting pari of the Denison House
report, for Weilesley students, is Miss Scudder's contribution
on her work with the Italians, many of whom we entertained
here last Decoration Day. -
Don't throw these reports into your waste baskets without
reading them! Take a few moments and dip into them, and
I'm sure you'll read more. R. C, '08.

POLLY: A GEOMETRICAL ROMANCE.
There once was a lad and also a lass
Both in the same geometry class.
He was very acute, that's so,
She was similar, that I know.
Although for him she had never angled.
Yet on the end of her line he dangled.
One eve, While walking around the square,
"You haven't a parallel," he did declare;
"Von are far from being plain (plane) in the face,
There is nothing about you anyway base."
"You compliment (complement) me," she did reply.
Saying these words with a long low sigh (loci).
Then this bold youth, because 'twas dark,
With his arm around her, described an arc.
But she drew away with a haughty tread;
"This is approaching the limit," she said.
Thus from him forever was his Polly gone (polygon).
From this a conclusion must surely be drawn,
A moral we all should ponder upon. i

Again societies. The strong; articles by Miss Cooper and Miss
Morrill bring out clearly the fact that the non-society as well as
the society girl has privileges, — the difference lying in the
recognition of the privileges, one having unrecognized while the
other has recognized privileges. Now can a girl with unrecog-
nized privileges who, as Miss Morrill's article says, "makes her
freedom and her pain serve her. and so is stronger than the
societ) girl for her strength is in and of herself" — can that girl
be as happy; as broad-minded ("in and of herself") as the
societ} girl? can she get as much out of college social life as the
society girl? I think not.
And after college days are over the girl with unrecognized
strength, unrecognized privileges returns to class reunions, or
visits tin- college during the year. Do any undergraduates
take special care to make her visit to her college happy and
pleasant ? Is she invited to participate in any merry-makings
other than class dinners, class cheering, and en masse affairs
which <}o not tend to bring out her hidden strength 3
The writer wishes this strength of the non-society girl to be
recognized and would venture to make a suggestion in that line.
(in page 332 of the Outlook for February S, is an article. "A
non-fraternity Federation." Let me quote a few lines — "The
increasing cxpciisiveness and exclusiveness of college fraterni-
ties had led to a large group of non-fraternity men. Without
adequate representation, possessed of scanty social advantages.
lacking that stimulus toward the highest development which
membership in a good college society affords, and without any
permanent tics to any portion of the undergraduate body after
graduation, many of this number dropped out of college, while
those who remained secured a one-sided development. It was to
till this need of the non-fraternity element that these neutral
organizations were established."
Would it be possible to have some such organization at
Welleslej Could the Bamswallows be developed in that line?
The writer suggests that the requirements for membership be
the same as at present — every student eligible: that the society
of Bamswallows adopt some emblem, as a pin, to be worn by
those members having diploma grade: that a fund be started to
which the different classes, societies, and outsiders may con-
tribute- a fund for a Rarnswallow building having the ad-
vantages of the present society houses but built on a larger
scale, In' such" .a building any girl might have the privilege of
entertaining her college friends in a way that is impossible in a
girl's ,.\\n' room. Perhaps such a building would be beneficial
to enforcement of the quiet rules of student government in the

dormitories. In such a building a girl could ente"
friends (with certain restrictions, of course). And when she
returned to Alma Mater after college days were over she has a
place where she may meet her friends and acquaint^'

"A beautiful voice, beautiful movements, and eve-
care for the body" is Greek in its spirit, than which we have
attained nothing higher, intellectual;
the college girl's ideal almost ignores the
moving and having her being. Is not the master-
intellect without its proper complement, unless she buil
